Happy Christmas is swiftly moving along. Right now this is a white artwork with too much metallic gold. I will fix that. Following the lead of my last artwork, The Circle (Will the Circle Be Unbroken) I have added and connected two canvases. I painted them white and placed store snowflakes on top of a wet white glaze. I then applied several more coats of clear glaze over the canvases to hold the flakes in place. I did tried to follow the instructions to fold a sheet of paper and cut out my own snowflakes, but all I accomplished was to create a lot of misshapen, jagged edges and paper waste. So off to the store I went.
I am planning on adding other colors to add some depth and interest to this project. Right now I am not thinking of sticking to the traditional Christmas colors, such as a bright red and green. I would rather use softer pastel versions of these and other colors. I want white to remain the dominate color. I will see what I can come up with. It is kind of hard to picture Santa Claus dressed in a light hot pink, red suit, but for this project it could work.
